Question: I would like to see Jesus expound on the statement Mother Mary made in her message in the last paragraph, second line, when she stated: “If you follow Archangel Michael’s call to be one with your ascended brothers and sisters, to be one with those ascended masters who are not just your brothers and sisters, but who truly are part of your own greater lifestream from which you came.” I was wondering if she was referring to twin flames or something else.
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
The reason Mother Mary inserted this little hint in her dictation was to help awaken the inner memory of those on earth who are descendants of the spiritual lineage of ascended masters. When you become aware of your spiritual lineage and establish a conscious connection to it through your Christ self, you can begin to draw upon the wisdom, power and attainment of that lineage. You can become the open door whereby the ascended masters in your lineage can express themselves here on earth.
The God in the Garden of Eden was not God in the highest sense. It was a representative of God who served as a spiritual teacher for a number of lifestreams on earth. The name of this spiritual teacher is Lord Maitreya, and he is indeed one of the highest spiritual teachers working with the earth. I am of the lineage of Lord Maitreya, and as I attained my Christhood, I became the open door for Lord Maitreya to give forth spiritual teachings, release spiritual light and even perform certain miracles here on earth. When I said, “I and my Father are one,” I was referring to Lord Maitreya as well as to my I AM Presence.
The important point here is that there are a number of people on earth who are very closely related to one or more ascended masters. One might say that they are only one spiritual generation away from a master or that they are individualizations of the master. After you ascend, you can choose to send a part of yourself back into embodiment to help the spiritual evolution of planet earth, and several ascended masters have done so.
When you become aware of your lineage and fully embrace this new spiritual identity, the ascended master(s) from which you descend can work through you, as Lord Maitreya worked through me. It is absolutely critical at this stage of the spiritual evolution of earth that the people who have this potential awaken to the reality of who they are. By allowing your spiritual lineage to work through you, you can render an immense service to this planet. This is especially critical right now because we do not see a mass awakening on this planet. Therefore, as has happened many times in the past, we need the few to hold the balance for the many.
Yet in order to hold the necessary balance for the transformation of the earth into the Aquarian-age consciousness, you need to reconnect to your spiritual lineage and be here below all that you are above. In other words, you need to realize that although you are an individualization of your spiritual lineage, you are not separated from that lineage. When you overcome your sense of separation, you can be your lineage in action on earth. Thereby, your spiritual lineage suddenly has the authority to act on earth because you are in embodiment and have free will. This then is the master key to raising the consciousness of humankind.
As I have said before, there are currently 10,000 people on earth who have the potential to manifest full Christhood. When you do manifest Christhood, you become one with your spiritual lineage. If these 10,000 people would reconnect to their spiritual lineage, I can assure you that this planet would be turned around and purified so quickly that it is beyond the current imagination of most spiritual seekers.
As I have said before, every concept we give you is meant to set your lifestreams free from a limited state of consciousness. Yet the dualistic mind can use any concept to solidify its beliefs. For well over a century, we have given spiritual seekers the concept of ascended masters, and it has been useful to many. Yet even this concept can become a trap if you solidify the belief that the ascended masters are somewhere up in heaven and have no connection to you. This has indeed happened to many people who have followed the teachings of the ascended masters. They have turned us into idols instead of examples, as orthodox Christians have done to me.
It is now time to step up to a higher understanding of this concept by realizing that we are not separated from you. Many of you are part of the spiritual lineage from which we also came, and therefore you need to stop seeing us a being far above you. You need to recognize the truth that the real purpose of the Master/disciple or Guru/chela relationship is that the disciple attains oneness with the Master.
I said, “I and my Father are one,” thus affirming my oneness with my Master. And I wanted my disciples to affirm their oneness with me, a test which Peter failed and which most Christians fail to this day. So if you consider yourself a student of the ascended masters, the goal of your personal path should be to attain spiritual oneness with your master, namely the ascended master out of whose lineage you have come.
If you follow a true spiritual Master for a time, yet refuse to fully enter into oneness with that Master, you will inevitably make yourself a student of the false masters who see themselves as separated from God. You will begin to follow the way that seemeth right unto a man, but the ends thereof are the ways of death. And as I said, you cannot serve two masters, meaning that you cannot follow a spiritual Master and maintain a sense of separation from your Master.
When you are a new student, you are not able to let go of your sense of separation and attain oneness with your Master. Yet as you continue on the path, you will come to a point where you can make no further progress until you overcome separation and embrace your oneness with your Master. If you dwell on the threshold to oneness, you will begin to use the teaching of your master to, in subtle ways, justify and solidify your separation from your master. This is a misuse of a true spiritual teaching.
The way of separation has never been the true path of the ascended masters. The true path has always been oneness, and that is why I said that “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:26). Unless you are willing to leave all sense of separation – all worldly attachments and sense of identity – behind and affirm your total oneness with me, you cannot truly be my disciple or the disciple of any other ascended master. Instead, you will become the disciple of the false masters, the impostors, who will tell you that you can enter heaven without letting go of the ego—the sense of identity based on separation from God. Heaven is oneness, and you cannot take your sense of separation with you into that oneness.
